Orlando Veterans Disability Lawyer

Do Not Give Up After A Denial

Veterans disability benefits include financial compensation and medical benefits. The amount of compensation you receive is calculated using your ratings decision. The VA rates physical and mental impairments from 10 percent to 100 percent disabling. Ratings of 30 percent or higher may entitle you to additional compensation for your dependents.

Without a lawyer's help, many veterans are unable to establish a service connection or obtain the disability rating they need to receive adequate benefits. I am Orlando veterans disability attorney Carmen M Love, and I provide representation for veterans with injuries and illnesses contracted in or aggravated by their military service. I will pursue your claim until I recover the benefits you are entitled to receive.

Benefits For PTSD, Agent Orange Exposure And More

If your claim was denied, you should appeal. Do not accept the first disability rating you receive. The amount of compensation you may receive is calculated primarily on your ratings decision. I will gather the medical evidence to demonstrate your disability and prove that your condition has a service connection.

Common conditions suffered by veterans include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — Approximately three of 10 combat veterans suffer from PTSD, while an additional two or three veterans will suffer partial PTSD. PTSD may cause panic attacks, flashbacks of the trauma, fear of event recurrence, restlessness, sleep disorders and headaches.
  • Agent Orange exposure — Veterans who served in the Vietnam War and were exposed to Agent Orange or other poisonous herbicides, may suffer diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Parkinson's disease and heart disease.
  • Gulf War Syndrome — Veterans who served in Southwest Asia during the Persian Gulf War after August 2, 1990 up to the present day may suffer from this syndrome. Common conditions may include undiagnosed illnesses or multisymptom illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.

In addition, veterans often suffer traumatic brain injury as well as traumatic or cumulative injuries to the back, spinal cord, arms, legs and joints. You should get medical treatment for all injuries and illnesses because they may be related to your service.
